Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (5 Oct 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The First Minister might be aware that the United Dance Organisation’s European and world dance qualifiers will be held in November and December but Scottish dancers will not be able to take part. To date, my constituent Michelle Connelly, who is the designated organiser of the Scottish qualifiers, has been unable to secure a suitable venue as all the councils across central Scotland are...

Scottish Parliament: Vaccination Certification Scheme (Exemptions) (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The cabinet secretary mentioned this issue in his response to Clare Adamson a minute ago. Can he elaborate on the proposed guidelines for how people who have been fully vaccinated abroad can obtain a vaccination certificate, or clearance to attend events in Scotland at which a certificate is required? With regard to exemptions that are based on health grounds, does the cabinet secretary...

Scottish Parliament: Diversion from Prosecution (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I, too, welcome the Lord Advocate to her role. We have heard a lot previously about the positives of diversion schemes elsewhere, and we have talked about drug misuse being more a public health issue than it is a criminal justice issue. Is Scotland leading the way in establishing diversion from prosecution, by bringing in the individualised and tailored approach to possession of drugs that...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I start by reiterating what other members have said: the Scottish Ambulance Service is the heartbeat of our NHS. There is no service like it. Providing emergency care for the public 24 hours a day, every day of the year, our Ambulance Service has a unique and challenging job. I place on record my thanks to the paramedics and others who make sure that the service is available to those who need...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I will not have time—unless I get the time back, Presiding Officer.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I give way to Mr O’Kane.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I do not accept that characterisation. Local authorities have their own decisions to make and, as Mr O’Kane might be aware, the local authority in North Lanarkshire is made up of a Labour and Conservative coalition. However, I was not trying to get into a political bun fight about what Labour might be doing in North Lanarkshire and what the SNP is doing at Holyrood; I was trying to say that...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I am sorry, Presiding Officer. I thought that I was going to get two minutes back.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ambulance Service (22 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I am sorry; I picked you up wrongly. In that case, I end by saying that I support the Government’s amendment.

Fulton MacGregor: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how it will develop the national community justice strategy that was announced in the programme for government. (S6O-00135)

Scottish Parliament: National Community Justice Strategy (15 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The supervision requirement of community payback orders is an important part of rehabilitation efforts and reducing the number of people in our prisons. Can the cabinet secretary confirm that the strategy will consider the expansion of supervision requirements? Will increased funding be required for front-line third sector community justice services that are involved in the delivery of those...

Scottish Parliament: Deaths of John Yuill and Lamara Bell (9 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: Does the Scottish Government have any plans for financial support for the continued process of police integration and reform?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Vaccine Certification Scheme (9 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: It is a great privilege to speak in a debate on a matter of such huge significance. I say at the outset that I intend to vote for the Government’s motion, but before I outline my reasons for that decision, I want to take some time to express concerns that I have—which I think that members across the chamber have—about the vaccination certification scheme and to make sure that the voices...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Vaccine Certification Scheme (9 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I have already covered that. The need for proportionality has been met by what the Deputy First Minister has said. I think that members from all parties would agree that the fact that the measure has a provisional end date and that there will be a three-weekly review brings in proportionality.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Vaccine Certification Scheme (9 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I am sorry, Mr Ross, but I would like to make some progress. I have mentioned one constituent. I thank around 50 other Coatbridge and Chryston constituents who got in touch with me and who will each receive a response from me. I understand the arguments about human rights and individual choice that they have put to me. I also understand that many of them have been double vaccinated but are...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery Consultation (1 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 4. To ask the Scottish Government how it plans to encourage people to engage with and respond to the Covid-19 recovery consultation. (S6O-00068)

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery Consultation (1 Sep 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: During the pandemic, swift progress was made to set up remote jury centres. It is important that services can continue to operate in a way that does not impede access to justice. Can the cabinet secretary outline the Scottish Government’s proposals for helping our justice system to renew and recover from the pandemic? I should say that I am just out of a meeting of the Criminal Justice...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Priorities (31 Aug 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate on the many remarkable achievements that this Government has already made, such a short time into office. The scale of those 100 days achievements is testament to our desire to repay the public for the faith that they put in us in May this year. I whole-heartedly welcome the co-operation agreement between the SNP and the Green Party, which will...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (23 Jun 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: Interventions such as the Scottish child payment will make a huge difference, but there will always be a limit to what can be achieved while the majority of powers to tackle child poverty remain reserved to Westminster. The cabinet secretary referred to that in her opening remarks, but will she provide further examples of areas where the Scottish Government is unable to act to tackle child...
